On tap at Fourth Street BBQ in Charleroi poured into a pint glass:

Look: Pours a nice orange to golden color with roughly an inch of head. Lacing is very present and retention is solid.

Smell: Notes of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and pine.

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me! Very citrus and grapefruit forward! Very dank DIPA!

Feel: Medium bodied and very creamy! A bit of a different feel for a DIPA with the creaminess but I am enjoying this.

Overall: This is a fantastic DIPA and probably my favorite offering from the crew at Helltown! They sure know how to brew IPAs! Hopefully now that they have a bottling line this will find its way into a bottle soon!
